The world’s fourth-largest smartphone vendor (as of the end of Q1 2021) keeps doing what it does best, churning out beautiful devices with impressive specifications at unbeatable prices like it’s nothing and thus gradually eating away at Samsung and Apple’s global market share.
Premium designs, smooth screens, and plenty of megapixels

Interestingly, the top-of-the-line variant is also a hair taller, narrower, thicker, and heavier than the non-Plus Reno 6 Pro configuration, even though the two devices share a curvier design language and a 6.55-inch display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and 90Hz refresh rate support.
While the Reno 6 and 6 Pro share a 64MP primary shooter, the 6 Pro and 6 Pro Plus each come with four cameras on their back. The latter model’s quad lens setup is headlined by a more sophisticated 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, with 13, 16, and 2MP snappers also present to perform telephoto, ultra-wide-angle, and macro duties.

The Reno 6 Pro retains the 2MP macro sensor while downgrading the ultra-wide-angle lens from 16 to 8 megapixels and trading the telephoto camera for a 2MP depth shooter, whereas the Reno 6 combines the 64MP main cam with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle snapper and (largely useless) 2MP macro lens. On the front, all three devices come with a single 32MP selfie shooter housed in a tiny hole punch at the top left corner.
Super fast charging, a reasonable amount of horsepower, and hard-to-rival prices

Of course, that’s sadly not how today’s mobile industry works. Besides, the chances of ever seeing even one of these three phones officially released stateside are, well, zero. On the bright side, European fans of relatively inexpensive 5G handsets should definitely look forward to a related announcement sometime in the not-too-distant future.
And because we like suspense, we’ve saved quite possibly the best feature for last. Believe it or not, the Reno 6, 6 Pro, and 6 Pro+ all come with 65W charging capabilities. The 6 Pro and 6 Pro Plus also share a hefty 4,500mAh battery, slightly downgraded to 4,300mAh cell capacity on the standard Reno 6.
Finally (and this time we promise we’re wrapping up), the entire Oppo Reno 6 family starts at 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage space while offering the option to bump that up to 12 and 256 gigs respectively… at a price. What more could you want from an “affordable” 5G powerhouse in 2021?
